Re: Obtaining (or compiling) Octochess 5190 or r5506HK

Actually, there is a premade Mac binary, although it is the slightly older version r5178. There's lot of other Mac engines as well at this site:

Re: Obtaining (or compiling) Octochess 5190 or r5506HK

I don't see a target for config in the Makefile. Maybe try:

make octochess

Sorry, no Mac to test here, but it does work for me under msys2 in Windows.

Re: Make engine stop repeating moves in a clearly won position

I think it will work better if you check for 50 move/repetition draws before checking to see if you have reached a depth of 0. Otherwise you might be returning a standpat value rather than a proper draw score.

Re: Looking for Nero source code

Visiting a kanetti.fi page redirects to elisanet.fi. Using this knowledge, I managed to stumble across a live version of Nero's home page:

Unfortunately, there is no source code available.

Re: Looking for Nero source code

I have not been able to get the supplied compile to work for me. I tried several GUIs, and even wb2uci, and no luck. I noticed it was a 64 bit executable. Perhaps Dann was trying some modifications. I saw a link to an old thread on the Chess Programming Wiki's entry for Nero. http://www.talkchess.co...

Re: Looking for Nero source code

I have this archive I downloaded from Dann Corbit's old site: https://mega.nz/file/y1dQgDQB#U0iln1orLppCF6H00vfhwhCbHIFlL-pzj21Qtd9TO7o It's a Lazarus compile of Nero 6.0, including source. I don't know if Dann modified it in any way to get it to compile with Lazarus. Sorry, I don't have the source ...

TThe elo is guessed less than 2500 so it is hardly steroids.
To be fair, the original Vice is around 2050 Elo, so even a 2400 rating for Vice NNUE would be a massive improvement.

Re: Sam retouched for CuteChess

Hello! I retouched Sam to make it compatible with CuteChess. As you maybe know, CuteChess considers illegal a promotion move without the piece symbol. Some time ago, I had suggested to CuteChess developers to be less strict on that point, but they refused, which is their right. So when I have time ...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Dorky website is gone! It was saved in wayback though (changed the links in my chronology). Links for Dorky versions above 4.3 have not changed. They were not on Matts site.
